[Q] Can't connect to laptop?
I got DHD 2 days ago, first day everything worked normaly, now I can't connect the phone via USB to laptop. I don't get the dialog asking to charge, use as disk etc. I tried everything, debug mode on/off, restarted, removed SD card and back in again, I used another SD card, reboot my laptop, phone (also with turned off "fast boot"), ... I've had HTC Magic till now, no problem connecting it as disk to my Macbook, same was with this one. I think I might have disconnected the USB too fast, but I'm not sure if it was this phone or the old HTC Magic. Interesting thing is, this topped working Thursday night, but on Friday I could connect it to the same laptop using Nokia's micro-USB cable, it worked, but no way to getting it to work with supplied HTC USB cable
I could use Nokia's cable, but it's in the office and HTC's cable should work, shouldn't it?
Does anyone have an idea what to do? Phone does not even set the card so laptop can recognise it as USB disk (even if I use Windows VM, phone is not detected, i I plug in Magic, it works on Mac and Windows. Would a factory reset help (how do I backup data on unrooted phone)?
And yes, I've searched this forum and tons of other things online, nothing seems to work
Some say this cable is for charge only, but a) how come it worked when I first got the phone? b) USB cable is a USB cable
